Just A Box Of Crayons

          While walking in a toy store
          The day before today,
          I over heard a Crayon Box
          With many things to say.

          "I don't like red!" said Yellow.
          And Green said, "Nor do I!"
          And no one here likes Orange,
          But no one knows quite why.

          "We are a box of crayons
          that really doesn't get along,"
          Said Blue to all the others.
          "Something here is wrong!"

          Well, I bought that box of crayons
          And took it home with me
          And laid out all the crayons
          So the crayons could all see

          They watched me as I colored
          With Red and Blue and Green
          And Black and White and Orange
          And every color in between

          They watched as Green became the grass
          And Blue became the sky.
          The Yellow sun was shining bright
          On White clouds drifting by.

          Colors changing as they touched,
          Becoming something new.
          They watched me as I colored.
          They watched till I was through.

          And when I'd finally finished,
          I began to walk away.
          And as I did the Crayon box
          Had something more to say........

          "I do like Red! " said the Yellow
          And Green said, "So do I !"
          And Blue you are terrific!
          "So high up in the sky."

          "We are a Box of Crayons
          Each of us unique,
          But when we get together
          The picture is complete"
